    So Seth Yates ran 3 SB pools on twitter. Took 3 K from all different people via PayPal and Venmo and never paid out the winners. He hasn’t tweeted since Super Bowl Sunday but has been active on RG as early as yesterday. I wasn’t a victim but he just screwed 3 K from members of the DFS community and maybe some people in this very forum. He was an Active poster on RG and also wrote a few columns in the past. Anyone hear anything? The guy use to tweet everyday all day and now nothing. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    That guy cracks me up! His yearly “Live Final Breakdown” is always interesting.

  • osuryanf

    Perhaps his friend found a dollar in the street, deposited it into the bank. Then, one of the Aztec gods spoke to this friend and told him to use Seth’s phone and account to deposit the dollar and play the $1 tournament.

    You never know guys.

    Sure enough I was in that contest and there he is. Denying one addiction for the next… This is getting worse by the minute.

    If anything, this thread might get Howtheprosdo more twitter followers. That’s a positive for everyone.

    I checked the link myself; it’s yesterday’s contest.

    Yep, I looked myself too. sethayates registered for that contest on DK yesterday. I wonder if his “friend” is now playing in his stead. I sure hope his “friend” isn’t using Apple Pay to join every porn site in the universe….. Good luck Seth.

    Hi everyone: I just wanted to make a quick statement on Seth Yates. Yes, this is his RG account. No, I’m not Seth. I’m a friend that dropped Seth off at rehab. He asked me to hold onto his phone as he didn’t want to check it into property.

    Seth is in rehab right now which is why he hasn’t posted on Twitter since the Super Bowl. He got really drunk that day and it was time to make the choice to go to rehab.

    Fast forward a few days; friends and family started getting phone calls from strangers asking where is Seth?

    One of the callers told me Seth used to write for this site so I got on his phone and typed in this address. I was just trying to see if anyone knew where the calls were coming from. I didn’t post anything I just scrolled a few pages. Finally, yesterday I realized me opening up this site made it look like Seth logged in.

    Now, for the question everyone is wondering. I unfortunately do not have Seth’s PayPal password to check on whatever is going on with this squares situation.

    I’ll do my best to figure it out next time he is allowed a phone call. In the meantime, his family friends and especially the random strangers not associated with Seth would appreciate the calls to stop. These are obviously from people that ran a quick Google, Twitter or Public Records search.

    Sorry that I don’t have an answer for everyone but right now the best thing Seth can do is focus on getting sober. I’m sure that when he gets out of rehab he will handle this situation.

    One last thing: Seth didn’t leave his Twitter logged in or I would have just made this statement there. It seems like as many of you know him on Twitter as here. I knew Seth from work so I didn’t know a lot about this side of his life until people started calling. I just knew he used to write for a some site as a hobby until one caller finally alerted me to the name of this site.

    I will check this thread again later but be advised I won’t be offering a ton of Seth’s personal information though when I do get a chance to talk to him I will be happy to pass on any well wishes and obviously will see what if anything I can do to assist in helping with this squares thing.

    Dude posting this claims he isn’t familiar with this website then jumps into a forum post via the mobile site (not easy) and posts “This is his RG account”

    Fishy as F***

    I have to add one thing here. I then did a search to see how his team did and his entry is nowhere to be found. I could be screwing up the search function, but admittedly I could not find his entry in the standings. Anyone else have any luck actually seeing his results? I have to be fair here.

    I mean, we can’t really be surprised, right? The social media silence certainly looked bad, but it provided very few answers..The “response from his friend” filled in the blanks.

  • MHDU2424

    That’s why most of us didn’t give him the benefit of the doubt LMAO

    A true scumbag who will get his eventually

    Scamming around like this for 3k when you have a family and little kids?

    SAD

  • Russthabus26

    So the real question is: did he already lose all 3k on DK or did he bet the rams. This seems the most pertinent information we need currently.

    Yes..I downloaded the .csv.

    He finished 16,285 with 277.5 points.

    It makes no sense, but people do it for far less… you see it on all different sites where goods/services are exchanged. Trading beer, snowboards, DFS, you name it.

  • Pbasniper

    He used his stone cold last dollar (or crowns) to try and make a score and he failed.

  • zpruitt3

    Lets not be cynical. It is entirely possible he fired a bullet into the $1 from the rehab front desk

    It is spectacular that this thread has positioned a bunch of pissed-off dudes who sent money to a random guy they didn’t know on the internet who then disappeared as the wise, seasoned figures in all of this, and the guy going “well who knows, let’s gather all the information before we definitively say what happened” as the naive ingenue.

    This so-called “random guy” also wrote and had a package for sale on RG. Are you saying that people who work for RG shouldn’t be trusted?

    Does playing yesterday’s NBA content constitute enough evidence that maybe, just maybe you had smoke blown up your ass and you can admit its seems INCREDIBLY fishy? No one knows the truth and everyone is trying to gather facts, but don’t play like this is anyone fault but his.

  • FkCoolers

    Guys let’s not be hasty. Maybe squirrelpatrol is correct. The FBI may have Seth in custody and he’s literally playing $1 games for his freedom.

    Thanks. This is better than True Detective.

    PERSONAL TAKE UPDATE: After further investigation by sleuth Det. Gordon…. my benefit of the doubt has been officially retracted. Unreal lol.
